Bangladeshi operator Meghna Aviation has signed a purchase agreement for two Bell helicopters, a Bell 505 and a Bell 407GXi, doubling their current rotorcraft fleet.

The new helicopters will be deployed to “support the company’s corporate, leisure and utility helicopter charter services”, says Bell in an 8 August statement.
